George Jacoban of Oak Dale, New York built this Quickie (#172) in nine months. It was completed in May 1980.
Ron Shoup (#2580) had his Q2 make its maiden flight on the first day of 1984. Ron lives in Lago Vista, Texas. He named his craft 'QTΠ (which means 'Cutie Pie' for the non-mathematical crowd).
The enlarged air inlet on this Quickie provided some relief from engine cooling problems, but even more was provided by the Great American prop. Its blade contour extends right to the hub, reducing the bulk in that area which blocks airflow.
A peek into the workshop of James Maris (#2337) back in Indiana. Dr. Maris is a professor of Aviation Technology at Purdue University.
